I am interested in fiction that sounds good, whether that fiction is written for adults or kids. I chose to read and review Just Sayin' partially because the book was so fun looking and partially because I thought it sounded like an interesting read.
This book tells the story - through a series of letters - of a young girl and a young boy who were almost step-siblings until things got messed up. These kids are really into insults, and they learn the power of words.
Who the book is for:
I assume that this book is supposed to be for 8 to 12 year old kids or something like that, but I don't know... I think that a parent would have to read this book and decide whether or not it is something that they would want their child reading, as there are a lot of insults and teasing in it. Some kids might not get the whole message but might just pick up some of the insults from the book.
What I liked:
This was a fun book to read.
I felt like I really got to know the kids in the book.
This is something that is different from other books out there.
This book has a good message.
The cover of this book is colorful and fun.
What I didn’t like:
I know that the book would not be the same without the insults that are included in it, but I wonder if some of them could have been left out...
Overall, I really enjoyed this book.
I give Just Sayin' 4 out of 5 stars.
